Between yesterday and today I got the fence put in. Done. It took two days because you gotta let the cement dry completely before you start yanking and pushing on the fence getting the boards up. All in all, it went incredibly smoothly and, you be the judge too, I think it came out looking quite professional. (See second to bottom picture).
Only one thing of note happened. Yesterday I had the whole frame up, but this morning I had to head down to Home Depot for the fence boards. I pull up to the cash register with 100 fence boards and the cashier asks me what I’m building. I tell her that I’m just putting up a fence, and she says that she was half expecting me to say I was building a tree fort. A tree fort? Tell me, does that guy in the picture look like the kind of guy who would be playing around in a tree fort? (Anyone who actually knows me is prohibited from answering that question. You know that I would, I’m just asking if I look like I would.) Anyways, I found it kind of amusing and even a compliment.
But it did get me thinking – where in my yard will I be able to build the tree fort?
